Default Assign Message Tone based on Verbiage in Subject Line

Please Login to Remove!


Is there a way to assign specific message tones based on the subject verbiage in the email.

Perhaps there is some software somewhere that can do this but I'm unsure.

You can set a filter on the Subject line and then have the message forwarded to your device as a Level 1 message.

You can then assign a different tone for L1 messages to differentiate them from regular emails.

Not sure if that's a sufficient solution to your specfic needs, but it's an option nonetheless.

For example, we have a global filter set up which looks at the subject line for the word 'urgent'.
If 'urgent' appears in the subject, it is automatically flagged as a Level 1 message, and thus gets a different alert notification on the handheld.

I think AlertMatrix by RexWireless might do this if the Level 1 approach doesn't work for you.
